Quite nice. Are you an upholsterer, or a hobby?

Have not test rode yet.
I had installed a CPR air-filter system. It was running lean. Previously replaced the needles with the Factory pro ones, ran better but still a little lean.Hoping these mains will bring it in? Test ride in the morning.
Still pops an decel. Air screws I think. I am going back to a two - two system so will eval jetting after completing the transistion.

Another seat, shorty windshield, a new sticker Waiting on a top box and it'll be my (current) ideal set up. We'll see how it works.

So after finding someone who makes a "plug" twin light setup that fits in the OEM screen, I decided to use that and modify the OEM screen.

After lots of maths, I ended up marking the section to be cut by eye.


Heated up the edges, bent the top over, and plastic welded it in place. (Plastic welding perspex is a real pain)


Nothing a lot of sanding can't fix.


Next I epoxied in the twin light plug, and fiber-glassed the rear.


Filling and sanding


This is where I'm at now. Needs some more finish sanding and filling, then it will be painted blue to match the body.



Hey, great idea and great skills! Thats exactly the style I like the most... well done. Please share your progress.

990R mudflap repair 092648913

Here in Cambodia when plastic parts break, we don't have a parts warehouse to order new stuff from. Instead we have "Plastic Wizards" who set up shop on the side of the road, equipped with soldiering irons, hot knives, and razor blades. They are amazing in their knowledge of plastic compounds, which will mend, weld, and reshape. And, which are hopeless shards of broken parts that will not resurrect.

My 09' 990 rear mud flap began cracking around the bolt holes. I noticed this when I was removing it to reshape the flap's edge that was rubbing on the swing arm.

Plastic wizard 2

Plastic wizard 3

My friend repaired the cracks in 10 minutes while a sat and sipped down a fresh coconut full of juice. Then he grinned and asked if $1 was too much. I smiled back, praising God for letting me live in such an awesome place for 20 years now.


Plastic wizard 1



Ready to reinstall back under the Beast.

Performed my very first Fuel filter change at 33,733 miles












New filter next to old filter

















Buttoned her up and took her for a 200 + mile ride. Solid with no leaks.
Even crossed over 34,000 miles on the ride.

CF skidplate with toolbox space

Hey, is it a good idea to make a carbon-fieber skidplate with the space for tools and spare tubes?

Here is just a start. Is the shape acceptable?

Very cool. Can you access to the (+) terminal on the right hand side? You know, to attach the battery tender or cable jump start....

Mounted the Highway Dirt Bikes hand guards today. I don't know why people bitch & moan about having to bend them to get them to fit. Mine bolted right up, no problems. A little locktite, good to go.

Thinking of painting the crash bars and pannier mounts on my new ride orange. The bike is silver and black so I want to get some KTM orange action going. Does anybody have pics of orange crash bars on a silver 950 Adv?
